Schenectady June 30 1782
I sincerely thank you for your Congratulations on my arrival in this place.
Whilst I join in adoring that Supreme being to whom alone can be attributed the signal successes of our Arms.
May the same providence that has hitherto in so remarkable a manner Envinced the Justice of our Cause, lead us to a speedy and honorable peace—& may its attendant Blessings soon restore this, once flourishing Town to its former Prosperity.
*I cannot but express my gratitude to you, for so distinguished a testimony of your regard.
